Great -- Awesome -- Blogging

Take a read of this blog post titled "Tally-Ho, Pip Pip": it is blogging that is better than much so-called literature. I've read putatively comic novels when I was an undergrad that weren't a quarter as witty as this blog guy and his commentators (the comments are just as hilarious.)

Because it's a blog, part of the experience is following the hotlinks to read the post of the moron being mocked.

Blog, Literature .... the lines blur. (Except here: no artistic genius here, more's the pity.) This is a real live case of blogging stimulating a level of literary creativity among a general population that some have said was dying out through irrelevance. Has the form, then, stimulated the content?
